An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all incoming email messages so as to impede any unwanted ones from reaching a particular mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to damage your PC. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and if they spot certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every shared hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the 5 levels of security that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose if the messages that the filter labels as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a separate email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a genuine email message. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also unbelievably easy.
